Examples of whitewashed in a Sentence

  1. White House spokesman Josh Earnest:

    His expectation is that details won't be...whitewashed...so that if it's necessary to take steps to prevent something like this from ever happening again, that those reforms are implemented promptly and effectively.

  2. Tara Houska:
